I loved Ravi. This is the full vid of the Montery performance.

He always blew me away, his obvious respect and demeanor, but also his passion. The first time I saw this I was completely awestruck - and then to top it off at the end - he stands, bows towards the audience with hands together out of respect, and then throws flower petals into the crowd. Awesome. When he starts trading with Alla Rakha @ about the 10 minute mark - right to the end, its one of the most amazing musical perfomances ever, in my opinion.

I got a soft spot for George anyways, and with Ravi moving on too it's kinda the end of a legacy that these two had. Sad day indeed.
